Feeling overwhelmed? Clutter may be the cause. Do you, or someone you know, struggle with one or more of the following clutter categories?
1. COLLECTIBLE CLUTTER
A “collector” of stamps, figurines, dolls or plates? If your collection no longer feels good, or it has become a bit overwhelming then ask yourself if you’re ready to let some of it go.
2. HOBBY CLUTTER
Just because you’ve spent a fortune on all the scrapbooking, card making, or sewing material doesn’t mean you have to keep it all. If you've lost interest, consider donating or passing on to a friend or family member. If you live in the DFW area, consider donating tools and material to SCRAP Denton.
3. WARDROBE CLUTTER
If your weight has varied significantly, then it’s understandable that you’re hesitant to get rid of clothes “you may wear again”. But keeping EVERYTHING in your closet is bound to add stress and confusion to your daily dressing routine. Good for you if you’re ready to let go! If you are not ready, consider keeping only the best items from each size and donating the rest. If you are anxious about letting go, box up your clothes and store them outside of your closet and re-evaluate in 6 months.
4. SENTIMENTAL CLUTTER
Do you have boxes of “stuff” that belonged to your parents, kids or even yourself? Keeping a few mementos is fine but if your active living space is crowded with boxes of memorabilia, it might be time to say goodbye. Consider giving away things right from your home by hosting a “house un-warming party." Instead of requesting gifts, guests take away items you no longer want.
5. ASPIRATIONAL CLUTTER
Simply put, stuff that you aspire to use but don’t. For example - Golf Clubs, Exercise Equipment, Books, DVD’s. If you've had any of these items longer than a year or two without using or referring to it – let it go!
